The snakes are symbols of life, wisdom, and the unified consciousness of DNA. Can these serpent creatures are your own DNA strands? What if the higher consciousness of this planet is a product of the collective wisdom of all DNA on the planet, working together in a unified field?
For the Greeks and modern Medicine, the staff represents the central support of the human body or spinal cord (Central Nervous System) symbolized as the physical location of the Sushumna- the spinal cord.
In the West, the knowledge of this Holy Spirit or Divine Energy of Liberation has been transmitted by the esoteric or mystical branches of all of the great religious traditions. It is present in the mystery religions of ancient Egypt; in the teachings of both the Gnostic and Neo-Platonism traditions; in the Cabalistic traditions of Judaism and in the personal testaments of great Christian mystics like St. Teresa, John of the Cross and St.Augustine.
Christians called Holy Spirit the divine manifestations as tongues of flames over the heads of apostles during the Pentecost reunion.
Moses saw it in the form of the burning bush. During the exodus the Israelites lost faith and were smitten by fiery serpents so God told Moses:
“Make thee a fiery serpent, and set it upon a pole: and it shall come to pass, that every one that is bitten, when he looketh upon it, shall live” (Numbers 21:8).
Some of the Israelites even began to worship this symbol, and the practice of worshipping the brazen serpent on the pole as a god.. Bronze and stone serpent artifacts have been found in excavations in Canaan, Gezer and other parts of Israel!
Jesus and Holy Spirit -The Old Testament symbol becomes significant in New testament when Christ suggests Kundalini awakening, not just for the tribe of Israel but as the true destiny of all Christians: “And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even as the son of man be lifted up: That whosoever believeth(look upon) in him should not perish but have eternal life” .
God gave to the people when they repented of their lack of faith, teaches man that he can be saved only by faith in Christ crucified.
Through intense prayer, meditation and a repetition of sacred syllables, these buried sparks of Man’s Consciousness can be fanned into a blazing Fire and liberated from their imprisonment in the darkness of ignorance. Man’s Consciousness (Christ Consciousness) can be raised until it rests in the crown from whence the “mystic” attains ecstatic visions and realizes his own Divine nature.
The experience of one’s “Intrinsic Life-Force” or Holy Spirit has been experienced from the most ancient Dream Time symbol of the Rainbow Serpent.
The Kingdom of God is within you (Luke 17:21).
